The thing is, I AM bottom heavy and it makes finding pants really, really difficult. I have a 32 inch waist but weigh 180 pounds at only 5'10". I have a big ass and wide hips so it's hard to find something that fits both up top and is slimmer in the leg. Do you think just getting these pants altered could be an option? Because I like the style of the pants, they were on a good sale, and sizing down isn't an option because they fit perfectly at the waist. Thanks for the advice. Try slimmer pants. There's a middle point between what you've got and truly slim pants. Trust me. You sound exactly like me (5'10", 170 and junk in the trunk). It's a crapshoot, but there are pants out there that look slim and work with your build. Try Epaulet (a forum affiliate) for a variety of pants in great fabrics and good cuts for all types of builds.
